Celebration, Florida

Artisan Park is the final village to be developed in the New Urbanist town of Celebration. The 600 unit community is unified by a string of 16 parks that stretch through the site. The parks house a multitude of uses, including open fields for play, preserved natural areas, a bocce court, and an amphitheater. Additionally, many homes on the village streets face garden pocket parks. DH+P was instrumental in establishing and implementing the vision for the project. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 1900’s, the project architecture reflects the craftsmanship of that era. DH+P designed the public realm including the parks, streetscapes, pond and wetland edges and the recreation center.  DH+P worked with local artisans to incorporate art elements including painted and mosaic tile, stone, pottery, metalwork, and woodwork into the overall fabric. At the heart of Artisan Park is the clubhouse and recreation center with architecture and hardscape elements that reflect characteristics of the Bungalow style.
